Pendant Mount Speaker for Open Ceilings

The DP6 is a high performance 6.5-inch pendant loudspeaker for open ceiling applications utilizing identical components as the D6 ceiling model. Offering the same great sound quality and excellent intelligibility as the D6, the DP6 pendant mount system features the same uniform voicing employed throughout the entire Distributed Design family. Uniform voicing allows the Distributed Design ceiling, surface and pendant mount loudspeakers to be combined in the same installation without compromising consistency from zone to zone.

The DP6 is equipped with a built-in autoformer, allowing the full loudspeaker output to be realized with 70V or 100V distribution lines. An easy-access selector switch is conveniently located on the face of the loudspeaker for selectable 8 ohm or 70V/100V operation, while an integrated rear cover hides all wiring and hanging hardware for an aesthetcally pleasing installation. Two 15-foot (4.5m) long 2mm (0.77") high tensile galvanized steel wire rope suspension cables with integrated spring clips for attaching the cable to the enclosure are included, along with Gripple brand adjustable height cable fasteners. Optonal accessories include 30ft (9.1m) and 50ft (15.2m) hang kits, a replacement Gripple speed clamp and trimmable 14ft (4.3m) decorative split loom tubing.

Available in standard black and white finishes, the Distributed Design DP6 provides high quality paging and musical performance for retail environments, restaurants, casinos and any open architecture space or location where a contoured and contemporary pendant form factor is desired.
